Despite similar cultures and extensive economic ties, Taiwan and China have not achieved a stable political relationship, let alone progress toward the unification that both governments once claimed to seek. Join us with author Syaru Shirley Lin as she introduces her book, Taiwan’s China Dilemma: Contested Identities and Multiple Interests in Taiwan’s Cross-Strait Economic Policy, and explains this puzzle by examining the connection between Taiwan’s consolidating national identity and its oscillating economic policy toward China. Followed by book signing.
